First there was Bruno who led me to Wallace and now to Opie. Opie is another dog who needs his rescue community “village” to come together once again and help him find a home.
Opie was found at only a few weeks old - alone, injured and scared. He was rescued from the shelter by Forgotten Friends of Long Island Rescue and placed in a foster home where he is thriving. Not about to allow a little thing like blindness stop him, Opie is very much a puppy. He loves to play, he loves adults, children, his canine brothers and sister and even enjoyed the company of a cat that his foster family was caring for temporarily. He is very submissive, super smart and knows all of his basic commands. He is also house trained and crate trained.
It is hoped that Opie will find his forever home with a family that will understand his current and future needs and will love him anyway. He would also love his new family to include another dog who will be his friend and guide.
Opie is currently being fostered in Deer Park, Long Island and, as a precaution - at least until he is a bit older - will need a home in Suffolk County.
While this may seem restrictive, there are currently 1.5 million residents in Suffolk County and Opie only needs one. Being the optimist that I am, I believe we can do this!
If you are unable to adopt or do not live in Suffolk County, please share Opie to help him find his happily ever after.
Thanks to all who comprise the "village" that will come together as always and work together until Opie is finally home.
